6. Did you attend RootsTech last year? If so, what was your favorite part?
No, but I attended the live webinars and caught the bug. 
I visited all of the booths in the exhibit hall.
Most valuable was talking with FamilySearch product managers and seeing their demos.
I enjoyed the syllabus material on CD, but wanted to print out several of the classes that I was going to attend--the printer near the registration desk was not mentioned.
I really enjoyed the Novell travel case--I use it often.
Having Internet and lap tops available was very helpful.
Least valuable was the pool table and play area.
Yes! The excitement in the air, it was awesome. I loved the big room with the large screens and the great presentations they had.

Please enter ONLY if you plan on attending RootsTech on February 2-4, 2012.

See ya tomorrow, for tomorrow is always another genealogy!
